I’m sitting here tonight celebrating two events. One is the second anniversary of my moving to Hawaii, and of course the second is Winter Solstice.
December 22 2009, I arrived “home” to Hawai’i Island and it has been an incredible adventure. At times it seems like just yesterday I stepped off the plane, but at other times it is hard to remember being anywhere else. My friend Frank DeMarco asked if it was 4 or 5 years since I had moved to Hawai’i, so it isn’t just me apparently.
Winter Solstice is a time of reflection and sitting here tonight my thoughts can’t help but turn toward what the coming years will bring, but crystal balls are notoriously foggy and as Yogi Berra said, “It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.”. I’m not even up on current events lately since I don’t watch TV and only occasionally look at headlines on the internet. There are, of course, no shortage of dire predictions about the future, and some of it may very well be true to some degree, but I’m simply not going to focus on those things and lend my energies to them. In the latest SharedWidom newsletter, Hank Wesselman said:
No matter what happens over the next several years, we’ll be at our best if we are grounded and heart-centered.
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
To all my countless two or three readers that still stop by (ok, and everyone else too) I wish all of you the happiest of holidays and love and happiness in the new year, come what may.
My good friend, author and publisher Frank DeMarco, will be on Coast to Coast AM this next week discussing his newest book, The Cosmic Internet. The Cosmic Internet follows The Sphere and the Hologram and chronicles his continuing interactions and discussions with a group of non-physical entities that he simply refers to as “the guys upstairs.”
You can read more about the books by clicking the links above, and you can find out more about the Coast to Coast AM interview, including times and dates, on the Hologram Books website.
There is an interesting post over at Sign of the Times, It’s Official- Cell Phones are Killing Bees, which might shed some light on the bee die offs being seen around the world. Even if it is not the ultimate cause, the effects of cell phone signals on bees described in the article are disturbing and our use of them should be carefully considered. And me with a new 2-year contract…
Scientists may have found the cause of the world’s sudden dwindling population of bees – and cell phones may be to blame. Research conducted in Lausanne, Switzerland has shown that the signal from cell phones not only confuses bees, but also may lead to their death. Over 83 experiments have yielded the same results. With virtually most of the population of the United States (and the rest of the world) owning cell phones, the impact has been greatly noticeable.
For those of you that might be cruising the web on mobile devices (smartphones) I’ve finally installed a mobile theme to make browsing my neglected blog easier for you. If will automatically detect if you are using a mobile device and provide you with that theme. Since it is very light-weight it is gentle on your bandwidth usage and should load very quickly for you.
If you would prefer to see the full theme, scroll down to the bottom of the main page and there is a switch that you can use to disable the mobile theme for your device. It should remember that choice until you clear your devices history, cache and cookies.
If you have any problems, please let me know and I’ll do my best to address them.
Fitting for earth day, National Geographic has posted 20 amazing images of the earth taken from space. Sorry, you will have to click the “read more” link for the link to show up since this theme strips out links and such on the main page.
